Mark Greenhill's Oil & Watercolours
Early Portraits and Australian Landscapes painted mostly in situ while on a year-long tour, 1975. Today my approach to landscape painting is semi-abstract narration through composition, colour and design. Typically my work begins with drawings and watercolour sketches painted outdoors which are then interpreted in the studio as oil on canvas. The final composition often includes animals or birdlife and other elements referenced solely from my photographs taken over a lifetime of visual experience. In my view, a landscape without people or fauna is like a stage without actors.
